Don’t Forget the Dog

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Pastoral Tarot - Six of SwordsToday’s draw is the Six of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of moving on, leaving behind difficulty for something better, and letting go.

Unlike the Eight of Cups, which has a similar theme but with an emotional aspect involved, in the Swords suit this theme is about strategy and logic. It’s about finding a better path for who you are and what you want, and leaving behind struggle and hardship in the process.

Here in this card we see a full family on their way, and their boat is empty of luggage.  They may not have taken goods or physical items with them, but they remembered what’s truly important.  They remembered the full family, including the dog.

Today’s card is a reminder that when looking to leave behind something that’s not working for you… don’t forget to take the love and loyalty along.  Everything else is expendable when it comes right down to it.

I took a 3 hour nap today. I didn’t mean to, but it happened and I’m trying my best not to feel negatively toward myself about it.
